  1. ejonline's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    How much does one scene mean to a movie? Can it make or break it? Most of this film is warm-hearted, capturing the appeal of folk music while gently poking fun at familiar tropes. Even more than Spinal Tap, I feel like the songs stand as nuanced homages to various genres. Love Levy and O'Hara's story. However, one bit of stupid, stupid transphobia is like a poke in the eye. So, can't recommend without that caveat.

  2. HKFanatic's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    Perhaps the gold standard for the mockumentary, so smart in how it manages to convey the appeal of folk music while also satirizing the way the genre seems to enshrine a moment in our culture that, even by the late Sixties, must have seemed horribly antiquated ("There’s chicken on the table/But you got to say grace"). Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara provide a sweetness here I find genuinely touching.

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    And what a mighty wind it was. Not his best, but it has its moments.

  4. HSBilly's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    its hilarious, but guest's character didn't do much in here.

  5. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    Revisiting Guest's mockumentary makes me love him even more. There's the usual magic that comes with the enormous work with his actors, but in this particular film a heartfelt approach to the characters and their music can be perceived. A little gem.

  6. Sean's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    So many great lines, loved the humour in this. Really enjoyed the music too.

  7. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    Great music, very funny, and surprisingly sweet for a Christopher Guest film. Eugene Levy's best performance?

  8. Adam GR's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    A gentle heartpiece by Christopher Guest. The music is spot-on. Eugene and Catherine emote in earnest.

  9. Samuel Dupont-Foisy's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

  10. Joel's rating of the film A Mighty Wind

    Essentially Spinal Tap 2.0 but with older folk and older music. Definitely appeals to a certain crowd, you gotta hand it to Christopher guest for simply putting together a unique style that is all his own. Worth the watch for those interested.

    It's "This Is Spinal Tap" for the hipster folk scene!
